Coming soon with Sam (Milby), Yen Santos and Yam Concepcion,” bungad ni Jericho.

    Bukod sa bagong serye ay isang pelikula rin ang gagawin ng aktor kasama sina Jessy Mendiola at Kim Chiu para sa nalalapit na Metro Manila Film Festival“It’s a story about dalawang mag-asawa and nagkabuhul-buhol. It’s a romantic comedy tungkol sa isang artista, ako ‘yung artista,” pagbabahagi ni Jericho.

    Kamakailan ay napabalitang nag-backout diumano si Kim sa MMFF movie na kanilang gagawin pero nilinaw ito ng aktor. “It’s too early to say that. Alam mo naman ang pelikula, minsan ako, minsan hindi ako. Hindi ko alam, wala namang backout na naganap,” giit ng aktor.

    Kim Chiu has clarified that she is not part of the movie "Girl in the Orange Dress," an entry to this year's Metro Manila Film Festival. 

    She said she was surprised to find out that she was included in the movie's cast alongside Jessy Mendiola, Jericho Rosales and Tom Rodriguez when the entries were announced. 

    "Nagulat po kami noon. Nasa Hawaii kami nu'ng nakita ko sa Twitter na kasali nga ako," she told ABS-CBN News' Mario Dumaual during a press conference for her new flick, "One Great Love," this Tuesday. 

    She explained that she was just one of the "proposed" actresses for the movie. Her clarification came days after reports claimed that she was "dropped" from the project. 

    She said that "One Great Love," which also stars Dennis Trillo and JC de Vera, is her proposed entry to this year's film festival. 

    Four more entries are to be determined, to be picked from the finished film submissions.

    What makes Jessy and Echo's film special

    November 01, 2018
    Jericho Rosales and Jessy Mendiola
    Jericho Rosales and Jessy Mendiola

    JERICHO Rosales is back with Quantum Films in “The Girl in the Orange Dress”, an entry in the coming Metro Manila Filmfest this December. This is his second filmfest entry under Quantum Films. The first one was “Walang Forever”, which won him the Metro Filmfest best actor award in 2016. He was then paired with Jennylyn Mercado. Now, he’s paired with Jessy Mendiola.

    In the story, Echo plays Rye del Rosario, a popular actor adored by everyone. He is larger than life and is identified with all the glitz and glamor of showbiz, but people don’t really know who the real Rye del Rosario is and Rye himself is starting to feel alienated from all the superficial hustle and bustle of life in showbiz. One night, he meets a girl in an orange dress in a party. He leaves with her and they end up spending the night together in a hotel.

    The strange girl doesn’t know that he is a well-known celebrity and treats him just like some ordinary guy and Rye likes it. But soon, the girl disappears and he doesn’t even know her name. So he looks for her and refers to her as the girl in the orange dress who regards him as a real person and not as just this big-named actor.

    The film's director, Jay Abello, says he’s just so amazed at the great chemistry between Echo and Jessy as the lead stars in the movie. “You will really root for them kasi they really look good together and very natural sila in their respective roles,” he says. “Maraming kikiligin sa mga eksena nila together.”

    It’s the first time for Echo to do a movie with Jessy and he says he’s surprised that she can be good in both their comic and dramatic scenes. “She’s really a fine actress at hindi ako magugulat kung malayo ang mararating niya,” he adds.

    The special guests in the movie are the real life sweetheart of Jessy, Luis Manzano, and Echo’s former partner in “Walang Forever”, Jennylyn Mercado, who also happens to be an ex-GF of Luis. This makes “The Girl in the Orange Dress” truly special and one of the must see films in the coming Metro Manila filmfest.
